Trouble starting Actions in Photoshop

New Here ,

I recenlty composed a Photoshop action and imported another from a friend.  Regarding both, when I try to use them I frequently get a message stating that "the command xyz is not currently available " where xyz might be "select", "merge", "camera raw", or any other function within the action itself.  I've tried downloading any missing brushes as some info on the net suggested but that did not help.

Any thoughts on resolving this would be appreciated.

I am using PS 2024 version  25.9.1

Thx!

in the future, to find the best place to post your message, use the list here, https://community.adobe.com/

p.s. i don't think the adobe website, and forums in particular, are easy to navigate, so don't spend a lot of time searching that forum list. do your best and we'll move the post (like this one has already been moved) if it helps you get responses.

Hi @hollanddentist 

Actually, you should at least see the action palette with the unfolded action in order to be able to make an assumption.

 

But obviously no layer is active. Therefore, nothing can be selected.

Take the Action panel out of button mode so that you can expand the steps and compare the step to the error.
